5.0 out of 5 stars Best Single Disc Jennings Overview July 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
Amid his flurry of reissues, Ultimate Waylon Jennings presents 22 top-10 country hits including 14 number ones. It starts with '68's "Only Daddy That'll Walk The Line," recorded before he wrestled the then-revolutionary right to produce his own records with his own band. It ends with 1987's "Rose In Paradise," along the way showing braggadocio ("I'm A Rambling Man," "Are You Ready For The Country"), wounded vulnerability ("Just To Satisfy You," a duet with Willie Nelson) and even a laugh at the oeuvre he pioneered ("Don't You Think This Outlaw Bit's Done Got Out Of Hand"). A protégé of Buddy Holly, he was rooted in the Southwest - which had fewer musical boundaries than Nashville - and he knew that country music (or, at least, his country music) could use rock and roll attitude. As for his voice - that soulful baritone overflowing with sincerity - he sang with an aura of truth.

Of all of Waylon's so-called "greatest hits" collections out there, this one comes closest to living up to its name.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ulitmate Waylon Jennings July 11 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Waylon Jenning's voice and his songs. His music is so easy to listen to, and tells a story. Sad he is gone. Love you, Waylon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best single CD but check RCA country legends Jan. 17 2005
By Peter Durward Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Many of the essential tracks from Waylon's time with RCA (1965 to 1985) are here. Despite some success in the sixties, most notably with Only daddy that'll walk the line, it wasn't until the seventies that his career really took off. Waylon had to fight a long battle with his record company to record the kind of music he wanted to record, but whatever misgivings RCA may have had, the results were impressive, both artistically and commercially.

Among the classics here you can find Are you sure Hank done it this way, Good hearted woman, Are you ready for the country, Luckenbach Texas, Mammas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys, I've always been crazy, Amanda and the theme from the Dukes of Hazzard (a TV series in which Waylon was also narrator). After the seventies gave way to the eighties, Waylon never again had any more number one hits on the country charts with RCA, but he still had some top ten hits including Just to satisfy you - a song that Waylon originally had success with in the sixties but which he revived as a duet with Willie Nelson.

Waylon had some success after he left RCA, most notably Rose in Paradise (included here) and his recordings with Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson, collectively known as the Highwaymen (represented here by the song of that title).

Several compilations of Waylon's music are available, but this is the strongest single CD. Nevertheless, you might wish to compare this with the double CD (RCA country legends) which has many more Waylon classics than you will find here although it doesn't contain Just to satisfy you, Rose in Paradise or Highwaymen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for a classic country rotation March 9 2006
By M. M. Benton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you're looking for the "best of" various artists for your classic country playlist, this album is a must. The size of the talent and the impact to country music cannot be overestimated -- but beyond that, it's just plain good music. (My only complaint is that in the remix, the fades were shortchanged, so if you listen to music with a "studio ear" be forewarned that this might bug you.) Otherwise, flawless.

3.0 out of 5 stars Best single compilation of Waylon? July 6 2005
By James Cantrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Evidently it is a maxim now that this is the best single disc overview of Waylon's career. And that is a questionable assertion. How can any 'best of' Waylon that omits 'Honky-Tonk Heroes' be remotely close to be a fully worthwhile compilation? I think that Waylon has about 15 songs that are essentials (and another 12 or so that are near-essentials), that all of those 15 must be included for a compilation to be 'complete.' Nine of those songs are the 9 on the original Greatest Hits, and only 7 of those 9 songs are on the Ultimate Waylon Jennings. In addition to the criminal omission of 'Honky Tonk Heroes,' this disc also omits 'Lonesome, Ornry, and Mean.'

Add those two songs to this disc, and it does become about as good as could ever be expected of a one disc overview of Waylon's career. Without that pair of songs, I wouldn't buy this for even $8.98.

And if something must be cut to make room for those two all-time classics, I say with gusto, Slash out 'The Highwayman.' Sci-Fi reincarnation belongs in Country Music about as much as drag queen reviews, which is not at all.
